If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.

SOURCE: spin cycle leaves clothes very wet

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: the clothes are very wet at the end of the cycle.

is your "anti-siphoning" valve or pump plugged with lint, etc. debris from previous laundering, also if it dries them sufficiently the 2nd time this is where I would start trouble-shooting the washer

My Whirlpool spins... It just does not do a very good job


It's very possible that the impeller in the drain pump is striping out and not allowing the pump to get up to high enough spin to completely drain.

Throw rugs are dripping wet after washing. My washer doesn't have just a spin cycle, so I have to rinse and spin. This still doesn't help. Every rug I wash comes out dripping.


The washer is likely detecting an off balance load with only a rug or two. You may want to try and put more rugs or old towles in to offer a counter balance to alleviate off balance condition. Or, you may consider washing the rugs at a commercial facility. They really are hard on the residential machines, especially if they come apart or the backing comes off.

Maytag MLE2000AYW not draining


When you removed that clog after the pump you should have gotten very very wet if that was the only clog.
 You will have to bail the water out of the tub or pull it out with a shop vac,and even then when you remove the other side of the hose on the pump you'll get a couple gallons of water coming at you,throw some towels over the motor control on the right front corner so it doesn't get wet and have more ready for the gush of water coming out.
 Throw rugs were notorious for clogging these hoses up also check the out going hose from the pump to the drain,if you have the heavy rubber hose run something through it to make sure it is cleared out.
 and if it was throw rugs your going to want to fill it and drain it several times when you get it draining again to make sure it is all cleared out of the machine,if it drains into a standpipe be careful it doesn't clog your pipes that stuff is like cement.

How do you wash one rug? I can't get the machine


You dont say how big this rug is, but I am guessing its not big enough to spreadevenly around the machine. The machine senses an imbalance and willo not spin or failos to spin at a rate that would rekove the water. Try adding some balance to the drum with another object that will evenly spread the load to see if that helops to get rid of the sopping water.
BTW any pictures of you whipping the rug around in the backyard? That should make for Utube fame!

Spin cycle has a terrible knocking noise. Looking for input on what the issue is and is it minor or major fix?


Hello. If I was nearby I would stop in and check this out for u. If the problem is an unbalanced load of clothes or unusually heavy items like throw rugs. If this is all it is the fix is to readjust the load, and also to take very large bulky items to a laundromat.

That said, it could be a more serious problem along these lines:

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

WILL NOT SPIN ON HIGH


The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
